With every rising of the sun, Think of your life as just begun. The past has shrived and buried deep All yesterdays there let them sleep. Concern yourself with but today, Woo it, and teach it to obey Your will and wish. Since time began Today has been the friend of man But in his blindness and his sorrow, He looks to yesterday and tomorrow. You, and today a soul sublime, And the great pregnant hour of time, With God himself to bind the twain Go forth, I sayattain, attain With God himself to bind the twain.
The man who radiates good cheer, who makes life happier wherever he meets it, is always a man of vision and faith.
